by Maor Ezer

I love this dish. It's fairly simple to make and gets better every day that it sits in the fridge. A real crowd pleaser.


  • 6 Bell Pepper
  • 300 Grams Ground beef or turkey
  • 1 Cup Rice
  • 2 Tomato
  • 2 Carrot
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cilantro
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Start by preparing the rice. Cook it half way trough,it will keep cooking later in the peppers

    Step 2

    Step 3

    Chop the onion (you can grate it too)

    Step 4

    Grate the carrots and chop the garlic

    Step 5

    Pour some Canola oil in

    Step 6

    I use a cast iron pot because they keep the heat better, but you can use a regular one

    Step 7

    Stir in the onion, carrots and garlic cloves

    Step 8

    Let it cook a bit until it softens up

    Step 9

    Add the rice and veggies in a bowl

    Step 10

    Stir in the meat. Add a hand full of chopped cilantro, I forgot!

    Step 11

    Don't by shy with the salt. The mix needs quite a lot.

    Step 12

    Stuff the peppers and place in pot

    Step 13

    Chop two tomatoes

    Step 14

    Add in the tomatoes, paste and salt & pepper

    Step 15

    Add water almost to cover the peppers, just as in the picture

    Step 16

    Bring to boil and then cook on low heat for 30-45 minutes

    Step 17

    Add the sauce to the peppers while cooking
